Jethro: Jethro Dirt grew up 69 miles west of Troy MO. but considers himself a city kid because he moved to Overland when he was 23.
Below is a short interview conducted by the statewide magazine: Automotive Trader...
What is your favorite band?
My favorite band? It's a toss-up. It's either REO Speedwagon or Def Leppard.... I go back and forth.
"Rock n' Roll Fantasy" by Bad Company- That song is the reason I started playing music. It's also what was playing on the radio the first time I showed a girl li'l jethro.
Kiss Meets the Phantom - I knew KISS was cool. (I was the president of my local chapter of the Kiss Army.) But, who knew that those guys were such great actors? That movie really inspired me. If Rock n' Roll doesn't show me the way, I think I might try and follow in their footsteps and pursue a career in acting.
Favorite place to party?
Party Cove- Lake of the Ozarks.
It's got it all, but most importantly the 4B's: Bar-B-Q, Babes, Beer, and Boobs... I like to refer to them as the B-not-to-complex vitamins.
Cabo Wabo Tequila. Sammy might not be able to drive 55, but he can make a Tequila that will have you speaking Mexican in no time. Gracias.
What kind of car do you drive?
El Camino- It's a truck and a car.
Do you have a favorite auto part?
Glass Packs. Shit, I'm a rocker. It's got to be loud to make me proud.
Favorite place to make sweet love to your woman?
I'm kind of an old-fashioned-kind-of-guy, ya know? There is nothing more romantic for a woman than the back seat. And, when you drive an
El Camino... you have an entire bed under the stars back there.
Words to live by?
"Fuck 'em if they can't take a joke."
What are your Dreams?
I'm just going to get higher and higher, because that's what Sammy (in Van Halen's 1987 hit, "Dreams") says dreams are made of.
